Been looking for some time for a Finnbear here is what I finally found.
Very nice. What caliber? Nice Leupold on it, too.
The original stock from the Bofors era barreled action has been replaced with a stock from an A-III Classic. Although not original, most Sako enthusiasts regard the Classic as a nicer stock than the standard stocks from the Bofors era.
It's been interesting learning about what I got. I had no idea what I had. Everyone has been very informative. What's your guess of value and age? Serial 2599##
Six digits would be too many serial numbers for this model. You can get its exact age from the Club's factory records service. Click the "Factory Records Service" link near the top of this page. However, Sako dropped the "Bofors Steel" mark on the barrels sometime around 1968. The A-III Classics were produced in the very late 1970's or early 1980's.
Your right minus one of the # I was trigger happy and added one too many
I just did the factory records and paid without putting the info in. Yeah I know I'm a jack wagon!
Nice one. I like the stock. It's extremely unusual to see a stock like that on an older gun.
Great looking gun!
Thank you. Deer season opens this coming weekend gonna see what this 1967 bad boy has to offer.
Did someone jewel the bolt/guide rod?
That's how I bought it. Not sure if that's factory or after market. I'm learning more about this rifle as I go.
